Change a user's role

This feature is only available to organization owners and administrators.

Users join as owners, administrators, members, or guests, depending on how they were invited.

An organization owner can change the role of any user. An organization administrator can change the role of most users, but cannot create or demote an organization owner.

You can can revoke your own owner or administrative privileges if there is at least one other owner in the organization (Consider promoting a new owner or deactivating the organization instead).

Changes Organization owners were introduced in Zulip 3.0; users that were marked as administrators in older Zulip instances are automatically converted during the upgrade to Zulip 3.0 into owners (who have the same permissions as administrators did previously).
